Bee Tree Garden; Food Forest in the Works!
Join us on a food forest adventure, told by Lara Scanlon. There are many forces working hard to make this garden a self-sustaining, renewable space for both food and skills projects, and it has all started to come together:
“Back at the garden, we planted our guilds, starting with fruit trees- peaches, apricots, and cherries! Then in a ring around the trees we planted garlic and onions to keep unwanted pests from messing with our tree roots. Then we put yarrow in to draw nutrients from the soil, and strawberries to act as an edible ground cover. Blueberries will provide us with berries and create a mid-story plant and fava beans will draw nitrogen for the other plants. Thyme and oregano will give us spices to make pizza in the fall while also providing soil cover, and artichokes will bring in pollinators, give us delicate artichokes to eat, and we can cut the leaves all summer to create mulch.”

Tackling Goals & Stewardship Roles
We’ve been going head-strong and heart-song toward the goals of giving kids of ALL ages the opportunity to commune with Nature and to learn the science and art of prim
itive living skills. Check out the re-cap Sam Forti put together about what we’ve accomplished in the past year!
Also, Molly has put together a little Q&A about Coyote Trails’ Nature Center, what we’ve been up to and where we’re going in order to restore the land. Check that out below!
